The Cameroon event also acts as a FIVB Women’s World Championship qualifier.

Kenya, who are the defending champions, beat Democratic Republic of Congo 3-0 (25-17, 25-15,25-12) on Monday, which of a follow up of earlier wins over Nigeria 3-0 (25-16, 25-8, 25-10) and Senegal 3-0 (25-21, 28-26, 25-15) in their first two matches.
